Science meets magic, and the true nature of reality is revealed!

What if reality isn't as rigid as we think it is?
Professor Jim Canter was tormented by memories of his devastating failure as a physicist. The experiment that should have proven his radical, world-changing theory had instead ended in universal accusations of fraud and deceit.

What if the laws of physics are flexible?
Clinging hopelessly to the remnants of his shattered career, he is forced to consider an incredible idea proposed by a mysterious new graduate student. Mika convinces him to try a final experiment, one that could show an unprecedented link between reality and the human mind, opening the door to possibilities beyond anything Jim had ever imagined.

What if science really can explain magic?
The outcome leads them both into a terrifying confrontation with an organization of ancient, undead creatures dedicated to keeping these secrets for themselves, and who may present an even greater threat to all of mankind.

What if the gods actually did exist? What if they still do?
Now they must race against time to find a way to protect themselves from an enemy that cannot be seen or touched, one that has been preparing for untold thousands of years.

With gripping realism and outstanding characterization, In the Shadow of the Earth introduces a darkly fascinating perspective on the nature of humanity and the universe. This science fantasy doesn't just ask the question "what if it could be?" Instead, it asks "what if it already is?"

From the Author:

In the Shadow of the Earth is the beginning of an ambitious new series dedicated to exploring the darker side of human nature. The rigorous attention to detail, in-depth characterization, and a unique approach to a logical magical system combine with fast-paced action to provide a compelling and original story.

About the Author:

While working toward his PhD in physics, J. P. Borders was a member of one of the teams credited with the discovery of the top quark. He then spent 20 years as a successful software developer before discovering that writing was more fulfilling than anything prior (although unfortunately programming still has to pay the bills). He lives in Connecticut and works in NYC, and would love to get your feedback on his stories.
